JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Whether Missouri State students will see a tuition hike next year is still unclear.
But a new move by Missouri lawmakers shows signs that students may see that increase waived.
Earlier today the Missouri Senate passed its version of next year’s budget and it included an increase for MSU.
University President Clif Smart announced in a tweet that the Senate’s budget included a $10 million bump for MSU.
This is not the final budget for the state.
But if the increase is kept in the budget, the university’s Board of Governors could waive the five percent tuition increase they approved last week.
